FNS is proposing changes to SNAP issuance regulations in accordance with the Food, Conservation and Energy Act of 2008 PL 110-234.

Final Rule: TEFAP Amendments to Requirements Regarding the Submission of State Plans and Allowability of Certain Administrative Costs
This final rule amends regulations by making state plans permanent, and by explicitly designating the processing of donated wild game as an allowable use of TEFAP administrative funds.
This final rule incorporates into the Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program regulations, statutory provisions set forth in the Farm Bill of 2008. The three provisions include adding honey as an eligible food for purchase with SFMNP benefits, prohibiting the value of SFMNP benefits from consideration as income or resources when determining eligibility for other programs under any federal, state or local law, and prohibiting the collection of state or local tax on a purchase of food with a benefit distributed under the SFMNP.
This final rule implements the provision of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 that gives the Secretary of Agriculture the authority to promulgate regulations for the operation and administration of the Senior Farmers' Market Nutrition Program, thereby making it a permanent program rather than a competitive grant.
Final Rule: FSP Employment and Training Program Provisions of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002
